Takuhi-jinja Shrine is located halfway up Takuhi-Yama mountain, the highest mountain in Nishinojima, Oki County, Shimane Prefecture, Japan.
It was built between the end of the 10th and the beginning of the 11th century.
It is believed that the shrine was founded one New Year's Eve when three sparks flew out of the sea and entered between the rocks where the present shrine building is located.
Even today, people pray to the god of the Takuhi-jinja shrine to bring them to safety when the sea rages. The god of the Takuhi-jinja shrine is revered as the guardian of maritime safety.
This historical shrine was the subject of a waka poem by the 12th-century Emperor Go-Toba. Furthermore, it is also famous for being portrayed in Ukiyo-e paintings by Hiroshige and Hokusai.
